Deeper We Fall 
by Chelsea M. Cameron 

(Deeper We Fall #1)


Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Publication date: January 24th 2013


SYNOPSIS – DEEPER WE FALL

    Two years after her best friend was involved in a car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.

Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.

Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie’s face.

Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves “To Kill a Mockingbird” as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can’t help but listen.

The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie’s discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache.

BEST GUEST POST EVER!
CHELSEA’S FAVORITE INFOMERCIALS!

When I was writing my bio, I was struggling to convey what I am really like in just a few words. So, I sat down and thought about all the things I like to do. Not the things I say I like to do, because that’s a different list. On that list might be working out, or shopping, or knitting. Those are all things I say I like to do, but only do if I have to.

I do drink massive amounts of tea, I am a crazy tweeter, and yes, I love infomercials. I have loved them since I was a kid and they’d come on after my Saturday morning cartoons. More often than not, I can be found on Sundays on the couch, laptop in my lap and an infomercial on the television. They’re the best kind of mindless television. And yes, like episodes of my favorite television shows, I have a few favorites that make me smile when they are on.

Not going to lie, I love watching the P90X informercials. I don’t know if it’s because watching other people suffer while they work out makes me feel better about myself, or if it’s all the guys taking their shirts off and showing their newly-chiseled abs (it’s probably the abs). I am also fond of Insanity, Turbo Jam and any other  Beach Body product.

My other favorites are the ones that make an everyday task look absolutely impossible. I’m looking at you, Touch N Brush. I’m also a huge fan of cooking informercials. There is nothing as cool as watching food cook on high speed. The Nu Wave Oven Pro is one of the best, as is the Showtime Rotisserie (a Ron Popeil product. He is the godfather of infomercials). Watching the Magic Bullet shred things and mix things is also really fun.

BUT, my all-time favorite is the Redi, Set, Go. It’s a cooking device shaped like a space ship, and is introduced by a woman named Cathy Mitchell. Seriously, watch this thing. I don’t know what is so mesmerizing about this one, but whenever it’s on, I sit down and watch it. I’ve probably seen it at least twenty times. She makes mini pizzas and steak and little dessert cakes in this device. The funny thing is, that you can only make one thing at a time, so if you wanted to actually make a meal for more than one person, you’d need, like, five of these devices all lined up on your kitchen counter. It’s completely impractical for real life, yet I still find myself wanting one of those little red things.

By the way, I have never actually bought a product from an informercial, which might be surprising. I was close to getting a Magic Bullet once, but a friend had one and it never worked right, so I resisted. It’s a good thing I have willpower, or else I’d have a lot of useless cooking implements and exercise videos kicking around my house. But that doesn’t mean I won’t continue to enjoy watching other people try to sell them to me.

    Lol I love how they make them sound so cheap too. “One 499.99$ now only 14$” O_o

    The Magic Bullet works great though I used that to make baby food and it was awesome!

  2. J. Anne Huss

    Oh, I never thought about how cool infomercials are until this post! I had that Magic Bullet and even the P90X one! Those DVD’s kicked my butt! :)

  3. Read for your future!

    I would love to win the Kindle or Nook but I hope they come with Deeper We Fall and Faster We Burn. Wow!!! What real and gritty romances, especially Deeper We Fall. I am putting them both on my TBR list!!!

  4. Katy

    LOL! I actually got the Turbo Jam. It wasn’t TOO bad, but I just couldn’t quite keep up. >.> Though, maybe that has more to do with my allergy to exercise. XD

  5. Victoria

    I love how they all “give” you a second item free. You just have to pay shipping and handling which can be up to $20.

  6. Alexandra

    I can totally understand being addicted to infomercials, because … (surprise!)… I am too! I loved the ones they did for this weird foldy box that sliced anything you put into it. “So easy!” Yeah, if you want all your food to be cubed from now on to eternity. *shudder*
    But whatever it is, kitchen helpers, skincare, exercise gadgets, I’m always yelling at the screen, going “Are you kidding me? That’s nonsense!”

    And yes, I love how they always make you overpay drastically for ONE item, and then generously give you stuff free – either random accessories, or, and this is my favourite, THE SAME THING A SECOND TIME! 😀

  7. Bookworm Brandee

    Oh my God! That is a brilliant guest post! Oh, and I’m gonna go with the abs, too, Chelsea! 😉 This may be before your time, but I once bought a Miracle Thaw…it did work but porcelain tile works just as well! :)

  8. Christine

    These books sound SO good! And love the informercial guest post–I owned a Magic Bullet and it did die fairly quickly, so good call on that one 😉

  9. Isis Erb

    I also admit that when I have TV I can often be found watching either infomercials or home shopping channels (as they are just slightly higher class infomercials IMHO). When you live alone they are the perfect white noise while I am puttering around the house, working on the computer (before it died – so now I am without access to TV AND no computer/Internet at home… It hurts, it hurts… I’m rather afraid if I get one back I will sit hunched in a corner stroking the item and saying “my precious, my precious”). Whew – that is scary when I see it in print! LOL
    Thanks for the great contest, but even more for the books!

  10. Bessamy

    Thanks so much for the cool giveaway! I sometimes find myself watching hair and exercise infomercials too!

    I left a comment and followed the blog as Bessamy S but the Rafflecopter form will not keep my entries. =( I tried both on my ipad with two different browsers and on my Mac with two different browsers and the entries will not stay.
